Arteza 120 set Coupon code is CraftingForAlmostEveryone5 which is valid until Sept. 20, 2019 (good for 10% off all of their products), and I was just given a new code that will be good until October 20, 2019 for all products as well…It is CraftingforAlmost Everyone6 You can use either code until Sept 20th, then after, you’ll need to use the one that ends in 6…


Don’t forget, Arteza has a YouTube page as well…

The cardstocks I used were:
Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 80 lb. Amazon $43.32
Georgia Pacific 110 lb at Walmart $5.48
Recollections Heavyweight 110 lb from Michaels on sale it’s normally $10

Neenah is the cardstock that I colored the fish on I wanted to make sure that you could see the same image colored with five different types of markers.

The ink I stamped with is from Brutus Monroe and is Detail ink and here’s the link to it:

I didn’t have the same colors for all of the markers, so you’ll need to compare the blending from marker family to marker family..

Arteza 120 set Coupon code is CraftingForAlmostEveryone5 which is valid until Sept. 20, 2019 and CraftingForAlmostEveryone6 is good until October 20, 2019 on all Arteza products. After September 20th, you’ll need to be sure to use the code ending in 6 to receive your discount.

I stamped the Arteza markers on all three types of cardstock so you can see if there is a difference between the cardstock you use when using alcohol markers. I found that the Georgia Pacific cardstock seemed to blend better than the others did. Neenah seemed to work the worst for me…Recollections seems to be middle of the road in performance…So if I was looking for a white cardstock to blend markers on, I think I prefer the Georgia Pacific. I’ll leave it up to you to decide which you think works best.
